The direction shown, i.e. which substrates are on the left and right sides, is in accordance with the direction in which it was curated.

Mass balance status: Balanced.

Enzyme Commission Primary Name: deacetoxycephalosporin-C hydroxylase

Enzyme Commission Synonyms: deacetylcephalosporin C synthase, 3'-methylcephem hydroxylase, DACS, DAOC hydroxylase, deacetoxycephalosporin C hydroxylase

Standard Gibbs Free Energy (ΔrG in kcal/mol): -119.75Inferred by computational analysis [Latendresse13]

Enzyme Commission Summary:
The enzyme can also use 3-exomethylenecephalosporin C as a substrate to form deacetoxycephalosporin C, although more slowly. In Acremonium chrysogenum, the enzyme forms part of a bifunctional protein along with EC It is a separate enzyme in Streptomyces clavuligerus.
